I have seen a lot of people who have the staff or leader badge. I can understand that you guys are the runners of the forum and have more authority etc... The part that has never been clear to me is how you guys became a leader. Do you get picked or something? Not saying i want to become one because that isn't my type of thing but just wondering how?

It was turbulent and confusing with lots of fights and drama in the past, but now it's handled through the Revora Association. You have a pool of association members (for a list, see revora.net/about/association) that elect or remove the two Board Members. Those two Board Members are the Network Leaders (i.e. Bart and me), who organize and lead the whole network. They pick the Division Leaders (e.g. Rob38 for T3A), who in turn pick their Division Admins and Staff.

That's quite a strange conundrum to ponder upon one day... if you're either curious about how website leadership is formed or just itching for a good story.

Isn't it the other way around?

It used to be that whoever paid said what goes, but now it's sort of the other way around, because the association defines who leads. However, if Bart and me didn't inject money every month, this whole operation would be bust immediately...

Seems to be a redesign of the forums. Is there a command center anymore?

Also those who pay choose to pay because there are others who would pay the full amount but are not allowed. Hence they are excluded from the opportunity to be nothing more than a donation giver.

Revora was "handed over" by another who gave up without making any rules or concessions about what happens should such a thing occur. Therefore, there was chaos. Tyrants are very good at calming chaos (just ask Syria.) So everything is working fine now.

But the full story is... (shut my mouth :ph34r:) and next time rememebr to log in first.
